Maypole Dairy

Maypole Dairy, 58 Spring Gardens, Buxton
28 August 1928

(Currently Carphone Warehouse)

An earlier photograph suggests that Maypole opened in 1900. There are also later photographs from the 1960s so we can deduce that Maypole was a stalwart of Spring Gardens for at least six decades. This image shows Maypole Dairy at its most conspicuous and stylish. It promotes itself as a dairy whereas in later times it seems more occupied with selling “coffee, teas, fish and steaks”. It is interesting to see how a business changes its produce with the times. Hear our interviewee’s memories of the Maypole above.
